 Molecular Link Between Arsenic Exposure and Lung Cancer Explored

Researchers have analyzed a panel of lung tumors from a population exposed to arsenic. "Lung tumors induced by arsenic are different molecular entities and specific therapeutic approaches should be considered," Martinez says.

"These results may help to prevent arsenic-related cancer in other parts of the world, such as USA and Canada, where exposure to arsenic (even at low levels) has been also linked with lung cancer and other diseases."

The 5th Latin American Conference on Lung Cancer will highlight the latest in lung cancer research and tobacco control. Nearly 1,000 medical professionals will gather at the conference to discuss the latest lung cancer research and treatment. Lung cancer kills more than 1.5 million people each year worldwide. It is also among the most challenging cancers to treat. Yet, there is excitement and hope, thanks to new advances which are improving the chances of better outcomes.
